Secluded, romantic, relaxing holiday destination

On the northwestern tip of the idyllic and beautiful Manda island you will find the lodge that shares its name. Amidst palm fringed unspoilt beaches Manda Bay's 16 cottages are built using local materials and 11 of them are virtually on the beach with the rest only slightly recessed. Each room is painted in shades reminiscent of the colours of the surrounding sea and landscape, and a refined internal decor is enhanced by the addition of pieces of local craft-work.

For those looking to relax Manda Bay is the perfect destination. With a cool swimming pool and a willing barman you could be forgiven for spending many a day poolside. A lonely stroll along the white sandy beach or with some romantic company is the perfect way to spend an afternoon, followed by a sumptuous seafood dinner. After which you could retire to your room or pay another visit to the friendly barman, the choice, as always at Manda Bay, is yours. And lets not forget the spa, massage and beauty treatments to help you on your way to perfect relaxation and when you have reached relaxation nirvana, try some of the many adventure activities on offer.

Surrounded by magnificent coral gardens, empty beaches and indigenous woodland, Manda Bay is a glorious destination for both active and leisurely holiday makers. For the more active the variety of activities is abundant. Guests can choose from deep sea fishing, windsurfing, laser sailing, mangrove trips, cultural visits, kayaking, water skiing and scuba diving to name a few. With regular sightings of dolphins, turtles and the occasional Humpback whale the marine life excels. Guests can enjoy safe snorkelling in the warm, gentle and clear waters.
